the ace hotel & wings+horns capsule collection, exclusively for beams gallery in japan, is a special project bringing together friends and like-minded brands from across the globe. taking inspiration from the sport of boxing, we worked with ace hotel and beams to create a 7-style capsule collection designed with the athlete in mind. from graphic printed t-shirts and thermal henley’s, to organic cotton french terry pieces including a sleeveless hoodie, a zip-up, a sweatpant, and a short alternative of our widely sought after hooded robe, this collection ties together character, history, and design, to bring you a collaboration that will go unmatched to others. all made in canada.
photographer matt black shot some photos for us (you can see a few after the click) at the 74-year old gleason’s boxing gym in new york, for a truly authentic feel. the shoot features boxers scott shatzer and henry atkins- both training to compete in the golden gloves tournament in 2012, and whom will continue training at gleason’s until the competition date.
